HIGH SCHOOL CAFETERIA
FROM THE TOWN OF SUMMERVILLE
You asked for it – you got it.Many of you have shown a great amount of
concern since the annexation of the golf course property into North
Charleston.Great concern has been continuously expressed to the Board.In turn, John Atkinson
was asked to contact the Town of Summerville
concerning the possibility of annexation into the town.The process requires us to have 75% of the
homeowners sign a petition for annexation.Further, this process would involve the town homes as they are needed to
make us contiguous with the course side of King’s Grant since the annexation of
With this meeting set, North Charleston
will be alert to our activities therefore there may be an additional push from North
Charleston to entice you into joining their city.We have already been contacted by one
resident who has stated in “fairness” to the City of North
Charleston we should allow them to speak also.If there is one of you who wish to lead an
effort for North Charleston
annexation – you have the right to do so.
The Board is not saying annex.That is your decision as individual
homeowners.The Board is suggesting
strongly however that you attend this meeting in order to make an educated

period, the judge will set a date for the hearing, which is expected to be the
first of next year.The Board will

King's Grant Golf Tournament
We are in the early stages of planning a golf tournament
this fall to raise money for the legal fund.
LOOKING FOR HELP FROM EVERYONE TO ASSIST IN MAKING THIS TOURNAMENT A SUCCESS!!
Can you join our committee to help plan the tournament?
Do you work somewhere or own your own company that would be
willing to sponsor a hole or donate a gift worth $100+ to the silent auction?
Do you have friends or family that work for a company that
would be willing to sponsor a hole or donate a gift to the silent auction?
Would you like to sign up as a player or put together a
foursome to play in the tournament?
If you answered 'Yes' to any of these questions, you could
really play a part in making this tournament a success!
We will have a date set in the next week for an afternoon
tournament with a silent auction and cookout/bbq to follow.
The majority of this neighborhood is opposed to any
development of our golf course, so I know we should be willing to come together
to plan this tournament, and have a little fun in the meantime while raising
money to save our course!
A flier will be sent out once our date is set to encourage
everyone to take part. Please call me if you can help on the committee or
have sponsorship or gift ideas!

On July 27th,
thirty-two ladies met together at Belle’s House of Pizza Greek and Italian
Restaurant in the GalleriaShopping
Center in Summerville.The food was good and the company, including
six friends from Coosaw Creek, was fun as we ate from the menu and chatted away
for a while.Thanks to Nelle Ashby, a
new consultant with Lillian Vernon’s Celebrations division, for presenting an
opportunity to do some shopping after lunch.The Celebrations division carries the personalized items that are so
popular, with items from soccer bags to lap throws to ice bins and holiday
decorating items. (They also carry a little girl’s “dress-up” trunk just full
of items perfect for a rainy afternoon’s play day indoors.)In addition, Nelle has pledged all of her
profits from now until the end of 2005 to the King’s Grant legal fund.Nelle presented a check for $80.00 from the
gathering to President Lynn Whitner during the August community meeting.Also, Nelle’s bonus items – children’s
backpacks – were donated to go along with the school supplies collected at the
lunch meeting.If you would like to see
a catalog or book a party, please give Nelle a buzz at 871-5130.It’s 100 degrees in the shade now, but
Christmas will be here before we know it!!Have fun shopping and help the legal fund at the same time.

donated to teachers in King’s Grant and to the Children in Crisis organization.
